Today's muse: Pictures, Poetry & Prose

* * *


"Are you lost, little one?"

"I feel like I am."

"You haven't lost your way, in as much as you simply haven't read the map."

"The directions are confusing. I don't understand them."

"Perhaps you would be better served to focus on the scenery, rather than the map."

"I did that, but now I'm afraid I took a wrong turn."

"There is no wrong turn."

"Are you sure?"

"Have you not seen that which you would have otherwise ignored?"

"I have seen love and hope."

"And have you learned nothing?"

"I have learned to trust and forgive."

"Then you are on the right path."

"Will you guide me when it's dark?"

"Always. And I will light a candle so you will find your way Home."

"Life is not a destination, but a journey." Well put Ms. Manning.

“The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.”

Wonderful MM. Heartfelt, Spiritual. I feel this one.
